  • 1/2 stick butter
  • Mexican Chile Powder Seasoning I used Tajin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lime sliced
  • cilantro garnish


  1. Mix corn, sour cream, cheddar cheese, mayo, green chilis, Mexican chili powder seasoning and salt and pepper in a large bowl

  2. Place corn mixture in a large skillet and heat on medium while stirring frequently

  3. Place corn mixture in a greased baking dish

  4. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until slightly browned on top

  5. Serve with lime slices to squeeze on corn and garnish with cilantro

Recipe Notes

The first time I made this I served it in individual cups to get the full effect. However, now I serve it in the baking dish. I always allow my kids to squeeze lime juice onto their servings. 

The best part of this Mexican Street Corn recipe is that the ingredients are easy to find in any grocery store, and you can add anything you want to the corn mixture. A lot of people prefer Queso Fresco (Mexican cheese) and Mexican Crema (Mexican Sour Cream). It's easy to find in Texas, but I'm not so sure in the other states. Both ways taste awesome.
